Speaking of pre-modern-ecology-movement point of view, Stumbo the Giant, which I believe was a back-up Little Lotta character, would eat Whale Sandwiches, which seems sorta creepy now, but at the time was something you''d just expect from a giant

another thing, is the treatment that criminals are given in "superman of 2945" tales..

hit with a ray that makes them slow down to snails so they cant commit crimes due to the slowness... this seems incredably inhumane to me.... i mean the modern version would just be breaking someones legs

In retrospect it is the characterization of Lois and, secondarily, Superman's treatment of her, that are ridiculous.  I love those old Lois Lanes but still...

On the other hand, she was portrayed just as often as a resourceful, successful, self-assured careerwoman.

Jimmy Olsen's portrayed level of doofusness -- the compare/contrast with Kirby's Jimmy Olsen portrayed competence was profound.

Why would ordinary people conclude Superman had a secret identity in the first place?  The writers knew, and the implausibility of that disguise drove 'em nuts and caused all kinds of contorted scripting.

---

Everyone in the Phantom Zone had nothing to do for eternity but float around disembodied and watch Superman and plot against him, all know his secrety identity from this exercise, but none could ever figure out upon escape how to make that knowledge work for them or against Superman????

---

Red K stories were invariably ridiculous, but they're better than the "Imaginary Stories" (while serving the same basic prupose) because they fit into continuity.  Maybe the most outlandish aspect of Red K is that it would affect all superbeings the same way in the same story, but (supposedly) never the same way twice, and never more than once, yet were "completely random" in effect.  Talk about a plot device.

Recovered Red K (and its catalogued effects) would actually make a great weapon against Kryptonian criminals, when you think about it.
